By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Delaware, Democrats, Florida, Kentucky, Republicans

So far the Tea Party candidates are 2 for 3 when it comes to the Senate. To me, Rubio’s win is much more important to the Tea Party than Paul’s. Especially since Rubio is so young, from a very populous state and is much smarter than Paul. Keep your eye on him. Christine O’Donnell, yeah, […]

Former Kentucky Commerce Secretary Bruce Lunsford is actually leading McConnell 49 to 44 in the latest Rasmussen polls.

Clinton Wins Kentucky

As soon as the polls closed, the nets called it for her. In fact, ABC currently has the spread 57 to 40, but it’s going to be bigger than that. Already one county is reporting 91 to 5 in her favor. More as it develops…although there’s probably not a lot more to say. Tweet

And the Democratic party views its […]

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in Barack, Hillary, Kentucky, West Virginia

Polls indicate that Hillary Clinton is headed for landslide victories in Kentucky’s and West Virginia’s primaries. She leads by 29 and 34 points respectively.
